    Notes 
    • An exract from "Wilson-Thompson Families,Being an Account of the Descendants of John Wilson ,of County Antrim, Ireland, whose two sons, John and William, founded Homes in Bucks County" by Warren S. Ely,1916
      " JOHN WILSON, whom tradition makes the ancestor of the Wilson family from Antrim, Ireland, which was transplanted to Bucks county about 1730 or 1735, was a nephew of Gilbert Wilson mentioned in the foregoing narrative. According to the family tradition, John Wilson was in the employ of Gilbert Kennedy, Earl of Cassilis, and clandestinely married the daughter, Isabelle Kennedy, and fled with her to County Antrim, Ireland, a few miles east or southeast of the town of Antrim. Mrs. Wilson was invariably known as Lady Isabelle, or Isabelle of Cassilis. The Wilson family, however, was an armorial family having a coat of arms representing a shield surmounted by a naked white hand holding a dagger. In the background was a half moon and three stars. The family cherished traditions of the bravery and prowess of their Scottish forbears. One clearly defined tradition relates that upon a certain occasion when a ship driven on the coast was in danger of being taken by pirates or mutineers, the bravery and promptitude of the Wilsons saved the vessel and all on board."
